   Thanks, but I already had to go through *that* process (replacement
miniroot for Sun-3's) to be here. My problems are with SPARC 1.4. After
a couple of days of debugging, it looks like nobody ever tried 1.4 with
anything using a VME SCSI card as the boot device! I've already found one
missing chunk of code, without which there isn't a hope in hell of it ever
doing anything but crashing in this configuration, and there may be more.
